– [Glenn] Ahoy mateys,
did you realize that solar power is the most
abundant energy source on earth? By turning to more solar powered objects, you’re reducing harmful emissions being released into your environment, and how cool is it to say that
you’re harnessing star power. I’m Glenn and I’ll be your
captain manning today’s subject. Let’s take a look at
10 solar powered boats and yachts making a big splash in the future of water voyaging. (upbeat electronic music) – [Woman] Number 10. – [Glenn] Go off-grid and
experience total freedom with the Arkup houseboat. Play Noah and bring on your
animal or human companions too. This amazing houseboat
can cruise the open seas at seven miles per hour. Or be stabilized by hydraulic stilts that you can rest on a bay
or port of your choosing. Worrying about the
potential of hurricanes? The Arkup is created to
withstand category four hurricane winds up to 155 miles per hour. This contemporary design
Titanic is two stories, sitting around 4,350 square feet. Energy is collected from its
wide array of solar paneling, while rainwater can be gathered
and purified for drinking. Enjoy the sun deck, which
slopes into the water and experience natural light throughout with floor to ceiling windows. Each of the four bedrooms up
top have a connecting Bathroom and the Arkup’s communication systems are said to be top-notch. The firm behind this stunning creation is looking to potentially launch these as eco resorts as well. You can expect this one
to be a pretty penny, but the good ones usually are. (relaxed music) – [Woman] Number nine. – [Glenn] In this beautiful yacht you don’t have to worry about
scaring away the dolphins with loud engine noises. This solar-powered beauty
can cover 100 miles with the electricity alone
and ensures that you hear the calming sound of the
sea and all its wonders. Its cruising speed rests at a comfortable seven miles per hour. A fresh water tank can hold 93 gallons, so don’t fret about not
quenching your thirst. Three bedrooms and three bathrooms will give you and your guests the privacy and luxury desired. With an elegant, yet simple design, the Fountaine Pajot My
40 offers its voyagers peaceful delights,
including a lounge saloon, open cockpit floor plan,
roomy cabins and flybridge. With beds that’ll allow
you to get your tan on. – [Woman] Number eight. – [Glenn] the electric Eelex 8000 is making for an excellent cruiser. It’s said to cover a 100-mile range and gets a top speed of 46 miles per hour. This solar driven boat is an
excellent choice for fishermen or anyone looking to haul
things around an island. The Eelex 8000 is uniquely customizable, and of course, free from
disgusting fumes and engine noises. So that you can focus
on more of the serenity that the water has to offer. (majestic music) – [Woman] Number seven. – [Glenn] Unique in its vertical design the SeaOrbiter is created
to go over 50% underwater, with a purpose to study
more of ocean life. Generated by solar power
and wind and wave power, it is meant to carry up to 22 people. If we’re lucky enough to see
this finished production, we might be able to get
a more personal look at the ferocious sharks or
tiny seahorses under the sea. This vessel is intended to have 12 decks, six of which will be underwater, used for a variety of
experiments and oceanography. It rings of stepping
into a new Atlantean age. – [Woman] Number six. – [Glenn] Ever wondered would it be like to glamp on water? Turn up the luxury with the Silent 55. With its electric propulsion,
noise, polluting fumes and vibration are significantly reduced. Its able to go 16 miles an hour and comes in five different layouts so you can find your
ideal captains quarters. Expansive port lights
and flush deck hatches allow for plenty of natural light. You have the freedom to control the temperature of your cabin, with the aeration system in place. In the galley there is
ample refrigeration space to sustain the crew on their voyage And the induction cooktop is a nice touch, requiring no burning of fuel. With ample room on deck
and spacious cabins having fun in the sun
looks positively regal. If you wish to add a sail then
know it’s entirely possible. There’s no doubt that the
Silent 55 makes for a great pal for any modern-day pirate wannabe or person wanting to simply
connect with the sea. (relaxed music) – [Woman] Number five. – [Glenn] Another racing boat making a name for itself
is the Solar Boat Twente, with its high solar power efficiency. Also competing in the Solar
Sports One competition, this boat is gearing for some recognition. You can also donate to the
University of Twente’s team so that they can achieve solar panels with 35% more efficiency. Undoubtedly the Solar Boat Twente is helping prove that
renewable energy is reliable and wicked-cool. – [Woman] Number four. – [Glenn] This water devil
is a creation from the team at the University of
Applied Sciences in Germany. It’s solar panels are mounted
to the carbon-fiber body. The Sunderbird is made for the daredevil wanting to pierce the waves. Interestingly you can drive
this one with your feet so your hands are free to wave when you cross the finish line or free to give your
competitor the middle finger. It’s your call. It has a top speed of 19 miles per hour, which I’d say is a respectable
way to cut through the waves. We’re hoping this one
evolves and spreads awareness of how clean solar power can be used. (relaxed music) – [Woman] Number three. – [Glenn] It is now perfectly fathomable to race on water with
just the power of the sun. This solar panel covered
boat can reach a top speed of 21 miles per hour on the waves. Racing is made easier using lighter and more efficient panels. The beauty of this Dutch solar boat is it’s much friendlier
to the environment. Although it may not look as sharp as its gas-powered counterparts, we can’t help but be impressed
with its eco-friendly design. – [Woman] Number two. – [Glenn] Like a lion
creeping on its prey, the Silent 80 is designed to propel without so much noise electrically. It’s so stealthy even
its vibration is low. So if you’re looking to
sneak up on your frenemy or crash a party, this yacht is for you. It’s 70 solar panels, electric motors and lithium batteries,
ensure the power you’re using is green and friendly
to those sea critters, while not skimping on efficiency. The deck area is spacious
enough for eight guests, has a sunbed, wraparound sofa and jacuzzi. Being able to have six cabins makes for entertaining on the high seas plausible. Large windows throughout the Silent 80 keep an open concept. A luxurious master suite
comes with a study, walk-around closet and sauna. This refined yacht can
reach a top speed of 20 miles per hour, it’s an ideal way to glide along the ocean and not feel guilty about harmful emissions. (relaxed music) – [Woman] Number one. – [Glenn] The remarkable Energy Observer is a ship with electric motors that runs on 100% renewable energy. It can be powered by its solar panels, wind turbines hydrogen
produced from seawater or kite sail. Jerome Delafosse says, “We
wanna make people dream. “To raise awareness, to
prove that humans can live “in harmony with nature
and that the fight against “global warming can open some doors “to a new economic expansion.” The interior is just as suave
and futuristically enticing as the exterior. From the living area you
can find three double cabins and two single cabins. You’ll find a fully equipped shower room and kitchen with an island, and with little windows throughout there’s no need to fear the confinement that you’d experience
in a basement office. When it’s time for that midnight party, set the mood with the
nocturnal light show. Yes captain, we are definitely on board with this innovative, eco-friendly ship. Let us know in the comments
below throughout this video what ships are standing out to you. More details and pricing
can also be found below in the descriptions box. (relaxed music) So as you see the world is blossoming with innovative solutions
when it comes to solar energy and applying that to our water craft. From boats to floating homes, the power of the sun is
an obviously efficient new way of helping us live better. Captaining at the helm of your ship has never been more satisfying. For more details and pricing, check the descriptions box below. Let us know in the comments
which boat or ship you’d pirate. Thanks for watching, see you in the next
Minds Eye Design video. – Hi everyone and thank you for watching. I’m Chandni with Minds Eye Design. – Hey guys this is Cassie, I hope you guys enjoyed this video. – We love to hear your feedback, so please leave some comments below and let us know your
favorite from this video and why you liked it. – Also, if you haven’t done so yet, make sure to hit the bell notification next to the subscribe button. – But don’t leave yet, keep
watching because there’s more. (majestic music) – Yeah, I’m definitely not
gonna take away from the time and effort that gets
put into these videos by everyone who works on
them from beginning to end. We definitely need to
high-five those guys. – [Glenn] These days, leaving civilization behind
to reconnect with nature doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the modern luxuries of technology. – For more information on this product the link is in the description below. – Videos are always written
out with the script, we wanna know what we’re gonna say. – [Glenn] By designing innovative and environmentally friendly rooms, to balance beauty with modern technology. – Thank you for watching Minds Eye Design. (upbeat music)

    Liked the first one the most. Though they all seem to be pleasure or short range craft. Curious if there usable electric/hybrid options out there for work and long range cruising applications. A fishing boat needs to last all day or even days out. Not just propulsion (be it main or trolling), it also needs power for everything else, from electronics to winches. The same for long range cruisers capable of crossing oceans or cruising the great loop. Like to see a video on what's out there or on the way.
    Also like to see one on electric/hybrid trucks capable of the same thing. From pickups to semi's.
    From my pov, until electric/hybrid can both prove itself as reliable and be more cost effective than biofuels it just not time yet. I look forward to that day though.

    Boat #10, "the Arkhup" is described as a "contemporary designed Titanic" at around minute 1:09. Was this meant to be sarcastic? We all know happened to the Titanic.

    Loved the video, I thought I should mention this in a number of areas new rules are coming into effect limiting combustion engine use so electric motors are the only powered option, from what I've read this is mostly in Europe but expect this will spread. There are companies like Torqeedo that make drop in replacement motors so converting to electric is easy some can even be used as generators to recoup power.

    Interesting but… people have been traveling the world with no fuels for thousands of years. It's called sailing and has a lower carbon footprint than producing solar panels. Yes the wind doesn't always blow, but neither does the sun always shine. 100 miles range on an electric boat is not very much (less useful than 100 miles in a car by far) compared to some cruisers that on one tank of diesel have a range of 5000miles. Then there are the cats covered with solar panels that take one of the reasons for boating (being outside on deck) and remove that option, even if you can walk on them without damaging them, burnt feet or butt would be the result. So interesting stuff, but a long way to go to be really practical. Put up a sail and head out on the open ocean for the original "green" boating experience.

    And fools still pay the extorsional costs. Electrics can and will go wrong. Electric and salt water don't mix very well and will rot motors like acid to plastic. Seen it all before. Its not as new as people try to make out. And making soler pannels cause polution in there manufacturing that will take meny years to gain a benefit from it. Add it up . This was proven in the 80s.
